Relive the Medicine X 2015 conference
Stanford Medicine X invited authors to submit their work to the conference, taking place at Stanford University on September 25-27, 2015. Below are the approved abstracts that presented at the Stanford Medicine X 2015 Conference. They are varied and include business, ePatient, practice, and research tracks, using oral, oral ignite, panel, poster, and workshop presentation formats.
A selection of submissions will be eligible for publication in the conference’s partner journal, in the PLoS ONE Virtual Collection.
Stanford Medicine X is uniquely situated between the intersection of health and technology, at a time when both fields are experiencing rapid growth. We hope to capture the energy surrounding these two fields and channel it into a body of scholarship devoted to examining the potential of technology to improve patient-centric healthcare.
Fostering innovation in healthcare technology is only possible through collaboration between forward-thinking academics and researchers. Authors from around the world come to Medicine X to present on a variety of topics relating to technology and healthcare. Many of them seek to establish new ways of thinking about patient-centric care, exploring the opportunities technology offers to empower patients in their own healthcare. The abstracts below are a reflection of the high caliber of scholarship available at Medicine X, and I am proud of the opportunity to feature these scholars’ work.
Medicine X is a 3-day conference that serves as catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and health care. The initiative explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care.
Where other technology conferences may focus on consumer trends or business-to-business needs, Medicine X brings an academic approach to understanding emerging technologies with the potential to improve health and advance the practice of medicine. Drawing on the best traditions of Stanford—an incubator of Silicon Valley—the conference aims to ignite interdisciplinary thinking and collaboration while encouraging a rigorous, quantitatively driven approach to understanding emerging technologies.
